Urhobo Progress Union To Establish Pan Urhobo Bank, to Woo Dangote, Other Investors

LAGOS JULY 22ND (URHOBOTODAY)-The President General of the Urhobo Progress Union (UPU), Chief Joe Orode Omene has said that the union was working on a proposal to establish a pan Urhobo Bank.
Chief Omene disclosed this development during a recent press conference he had with newsmen.
According to him, the UPU was also working to woo Dangote Group and other big investors to the Urhobo nation as well as see to how to revitalise all ailing industries in Urhobo
Meanwhile, Omene has once again debunked speculations that the Urhobo nation received over N1.2 Billion from former president Goodluck Jonathan prior to the March, 2015 presidential election in the country.
He questioned: “if the President gave Urhobo N1.2b, how much did he give to the Ijaws, Aniomas, Isokos, Itsekiris and other ethnic group across Nigeria and how much was the total budget of President Jonathan’s 2015 campaign?”
Declaring that his hands were clean, he added: “They have cross checked my bank accounts and all my transaction, which ordinarily I shouldn’t succumb to. But because of leadership and wanting to lead by example I allowed them and nothing was found against me.”
